Song of the Day “Bloodstains” – Agent Orange

agent-orange

they can make things worse for me
sometimes i’d rather die
they can tell me lots of things
but i can’t see eye to eye
well, i know they know the way i think
i know they always will
but someday i’m gonna change my mind
sometimes i’d rather kill

bloodstains – speed kills
fast cars – cheap thrills
rich girls – fine wine
i’ve lost my sense – i’ve lost control – i’ve lost my mind

things seem so much different now
the scene has died away
i haven’t got a steady job
and i’ve got no place to stay
well, it’s a futuristic modern world
but things aren’t what they seem
someday you’d better wake up
from this stupid fantasy

Song Of The Day “Wild In The Streets” – Circle Jerks

circle-jerks

wild,wild,wild,wild,
wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild in the streets

in the heat of the summer
better call out a plumber
turn on the steam pipe
cool me off
with your big crime fighters
and your newspaper writers
still need a drugstore
to cure my buzz

wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets

’64 valiant,hand full of valiums
couple of beers really do me right
you better believe us,better trust us ,
teenage jive,walking wreck

wild,wild,wild,running wild
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets

got a gang called the wolves
you have to choose
play with the boys
you’re bound to lose
a bottle in one hand
a can in the other
don’t fool around ’cause they’re real
mean mothers

wild,wild,wild,wild,
wild running,running
wild
Mrs. America,how’s your favorite son?
do you care just what he’s done? no!
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,
wild in the streets,running,running,

wild in the streets,we’re running,running
wild in the streets,we’re running,running
wild in the streets,we’re running,running
wild in the streets

Ten Weird Bands That Wear Masks

gwar

I’ve always been fascinated by Lucha Libre wrestling. And there seems to be a connection between punk, metal, and Lucha Libre. So when I came upon this article about ten bands who wear masks it seemed like a combination of two things that went together unexpectedly well.

Behold, some of the masked bands included are:

Buckethead

He is a musician and songwriter, who have released 27 solo albums. He has been a part of over 50 albums. He will play anything from bluegrass to thrash metal. He is able to play many instruments, but is recognized for his guitar playing the most. He claims to have been raised by chickens. This is why he wears the bucket on his head. He wants everyone to be aware of the chicken holocaust happening in restaurants everywhere.

Gwar

GWAR is a thrash metal band that has obscene and raunchy lyrics with graphic stage performances to match. They claim to have come from outer space to rule this planet. They say that they were to powerful for the universe and now they are just going to take over this world.

Los Straitjackets

This instrumental rock band has released sixteen albums. They will use wrestling masks to conceal their identities while playing for audiences worldwide. There is only one member of this band that speaks and that is only to introduce their songs.
